The Importance of Floorplans

October 14, 2020

Our research has shown that buyers overwhelmingly prefer floorplans on property details in addition to the usual description and written dimensions.  There are several good reasons behind this preference, which is why we always feature floorplans on our particulars.

Firstly, where several properties are competing for a buyer’s attention, a floorplan always make an immediate impression.  The layout of a property is a major consideration when choosing a new home, and cannot adequately be described by words and room sizes alone.  It is the relationship between the rooms in a property that can make the difference between a comfortable and attractive home and a purely functional one.

People make buying decisions on how a property “feels” as much as they consider its size.  Some buyers may want several smaller rooms as they see them as practical for their lifestyle, others will prefer an open plan layout.  Only floorplans can accurately relay how the accommodation actually “works” in practice, illustrating how it could complement the needs of a buyer.

Conversely, in instances where a floorplan alerts a purchaser to a blatantly unsuitable property, fruitless viewings can be avoided.  This helps to improve the ratio of viewings that actually become sales, saving a great deal of time and frustration.

We also have examples of buyers having bought a property that might have otherwise appeared unsuitable, but the floorplan helped the buyer to visualise adaptability in the accommodation that encouraged them to view.  Indeed, Rightmove reports that property listings with a floorplan receive 60% more interest than those without a floorplan.

If your agent doesn’t provide floorplans give us a call to discuss what we can offer including, how we include floorplans as standard for our clients.
